Chase the Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow in Foxium’s New Online Slot – Stumpy McDoodles!
32Red Casino has just added the latest slot release from Foxium which is a Leprechaun themed slot called Stumpy McDoodles, you can expect rainbows, pots of gold, four leaf clovers and lashings of beer to feature heavily in this slot along with Stumpy and Penny McDoodles.
The Stumpy McDoodles slot is a 5×4 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines, slightly larger than normal for a 20 payline slot, the regular base gameplay is a mixture of stacked symbols along with added multipliers and wilds that can be activated from the Stumpy Random Wilds feature.
Before starting the game though its worth considering activating the Foxify Feature, which basically doubles the values of the Multipliers in both the base game and bonus round for an extra cost per spin (50%), in our playtests this slot didn’t feel like a particularly volatile release so we played exclusively with this option selected in the hope of some crazy multipliers.
The base game, however, is actually capable of some very decent wins thanks to these features with up to 8 added wilds and multipliers up to 5x possible from the Added Wilds / Multiplier feature.
Triggering the bonus is done in the regular 3 scatter fashion and with the addition of a free Rainbow Re-Spin feature for 2 scatters landing in view making the bonus rounds trigger quite frequently.
During the bonus round, similar mechanics are in play including Shifting Wilds, Added Multipliers that stay for the duration of the free spins, and extra free spins for reaching certain checkpoints. With only 5 initial free spins though this can be a somewhat disappointing bonus feature, the extra spins and extra wilds are really required to extend the bonus round and get more wilds into play on the reels.
You can check out all of the main features in the gameplay video below.

Stumpy Random Wilds
The Stumpy Random Wilds feature is triggered randomly in the base game, an exploding pot of gold adds multipliers in the range of 2x to 5x and 3-8 Wilds on the reels.
The Rainbow Re-spin feature occurs when only 2 scatters land in view on the reels. A re-spin is awarded giving you a second chance to land the third scatter and trigger the Free Spins.
When the bonus is triggered you are initially awarded 5 Free Spins.
The magic pot is much more frequent during the bonus round and can add Wilds, Multipliers or both at the same time when it appears.
The collection meter tracks your current progress, with checkpoints that add extra wilds and also grant extra free spins if you manage to unlock the final position on this meter the wild are transformed into a 2×2 large wild that will shift around the reels during each free spin.
Activating the Foxify features makes spins cost 50% more, reel symbols still pay the same amounts but the multipliers in the base game and free spins are doubled.
Stumpy McDoodles Slot
The Stumpy McDoodles slot from Foxium is a reasonably solid 20 payline machine, the Foxify option allows you to tweak the volatility of this machine if you are looking for the potentially bigger wins from the Multipliers or play it in standard mode.
The base gameplay is quite decent thanks mainly to the Stumpy Random Wilds feature which can produce some very good wins especially with the Foxify option on.
The bonus round can be disappointing given that you only start with 5 free spins, so if you don’t manage to earn the extra wilds quickly the bonus round ends with poor results.
If you do manage to get the 4 roaming wilds or the 2×2 square wild then you should also have a decent multiplier for the final few spins making this slot capable of wins in the 100x – 200x stake range quite possible, but we would have loved to have seen a bigger emphasis on the bonus feature with more spins, and more added wilds being a possibility than just the 2×2 wild square.
Graphically this slot is superb, so if you favour medium variance machines with regular bonuses then this is certainly worth checking out.
